Among the many diagnostic procedures performed in the office, four of the most common include:
Ultrasound produces detailed images of the kidneys, bladder, prostate, scrotum, and penis, allowing your provider to diagnose the cause of your symptoms.
A urinalysis detects signs of many urological problems, such as urinary tract infections, kidney disease, and kidney stones.
Urodynamic studies include a group of diagnostic tests showing how your urinary tract stores and releases urine. Your provider does urodynamic studies to diagnose urinary incontinence and the cause of problems like pain during urination.
This is a blood test that screens for prostate cancer.
Pasadena Urological Medical Group treats benign prostatic hyperplasia (an enlarged prostate) with advanced in-office procedures.
For example, they use the Rezūm® System and perform transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT) to eliminate prostate tissue that is blocking the urethra. They also specialize in the UroLift® System, which uses implants to gently pull the tissues away from the urethra.
Yes, the team performs in-house endoscopies. Your provider inserts a narrow, tube-like scope into your penis and gently guides it through the urethra to your prostate and bladder.
The scope holds a camera that sends high-definition images to a monitor. Your provider examines the tissues and treats problems using the endoscope. For example, they may remove parts of the prostate (transurethral resection of the prostate) or perform a cystoscopy.
During a cystoscopy, your provider uses the scope to examine your urethra and bladder. They diagnose and treat problems such as bladder cancer, urinary tract infections, and incontinence.
